Custom rebuilt transmission
Custom rebuilt transmission – recently a customer came in with a transmission problem. The trans would neutralize when stopped and take off in high gear. After several road tests, visual inspection (on the lift) and a scan check the problem was confirmed. The transmission sits behind a 7.3 liter turbo diesel engine that creates a lot of torque, heat and some vibration. The black, broken down (ATF) fluid and code indicating a problem in the lock-up circuit showed indications of excessive wear. A pan examination showed clumps of metal and friction material. We removed and inspected the transmission with the customer’s permission. The 3rd and 4th gear clutch packs were badly burned and coming apart. There was metal from the original torque converter present throughout the pump and valve body. We recommended a Custom rebuilt transmission and torque converter to address the stress from towing heavy loads. Premium clutch packs and bonded pistons, shift improvement kit, pump update, bushings and improved filtration and solenoid pack were opted for.
The addition of a billet covered, upgraded torque converter would improve reliability and performance. In concert with BG synthetic transmission fluid and proper cooler line flushing the installation would be a success. The customer picked up his truck and went back to his landscaping business. He contacted us several times indicating just how pleased with the pulling power, lack of noise and smooth shifting the transmission delivered.
So if you need a major or minor repair,transmission electronic diagnosis, flush, leak fixed or a Custom rebuilt transmission, keep us in mind. 281-858-1052
